Marketing the benefits of coffee... in the 1650s

 From Boing Boing:

London’s first coffeehouse (or rather, coffee stall) was opened by an eccentric Greek named Pasqua Roseé in 1652.

By 1663 there were 82 coffeehouses within the old Roman walls of the City. For more see this excellent article from the Daily Telegraph:
